In characterizing an episode or a state as knowing, we are not giving an empirical description of it. We are placing it in the logical space of reasons, of justifying and being able to justify what one says.
- Note, there’s nothing too special about knowing.
- He could also have said believing.
- We’re doing something, an act that’s not describing something.
- Relates to the Scienta mensura quote - we have an example of something (describing knowledge) as something that science is not the measure of all things about.
